The Philadelphia Sixers are bringing back forward Corey Brewer for a second 10-day contract. The team made the move official on Thursday.

Brewer, 32, originally signed a 10-day contract with the Sixers on Jan. 15.

Since signing, Brewer has appeared in three games for the Sixers, including two starts in place of an injured Jimmy Butler. He has played a key role in two Sixers victories, defending James Harden and DeMar DeRozan in a pair of Sixers wins.

In 69 total minutes this season, Brewer is averaging 7.7 points, 2.0 rebounds, and hitting on 3-5 from three-point range.

By keeping Brewer around another 10 days, they'll either have to let him go at the end of the deal, or sign him to a rest-of-season deal.
